'Star' Jones can be captain - Nev

BY foxsports • July 2, 2011

Neville, born in Bury, is a lifelong United fan and retired mid-season earlier this year after making 602 appearances for the Old Trafford club. Jones, 19, agreed a five-year contract after Blackburn agreed an undisclosed transfer fee last month, and Neville is predicting a bright future. "I think this lad's going to be a star, I really do," the former England full-back told Singapore's The New Paper. "I think he's going to be somebody who could potentially be a captain of Manchester United in the future. "He looks really solid and he's somebody who can be a huge player for the club for the next 10 years. "There's a lot of potential there and the performances he's put in over the last two years have been outstanding, particularly against us. "For a 19-year-old that's excellent. He's a great signing for us."
